Cupcakes to die for! I will dream of these now!

I've been many places trying cupcakes, but none have topped this place. Wow! We stumbled upon this place after eating sushi. Boy am I glad we did! Moist cupcakes with very cool creations. On my list for when I return!

They have a few places around the city but have only tried this one. They are a little bit on the pricey side but once you have tasted them you will see why.

While visiting San Francisco, Cako is an awesome place to go - just seeing all the cupcakes and macaroons makes for a worthwhile stop into this bakery. There's a huge variety, and everything tasted delicious! Reasonably priced.

As I was walking back and forth to different convention locations, I passed Cako. My sweet tooth is ridiculous and I consider sugar a food group. I stopped in and ordered a banana pudding cupcake. Really??? Who's gonna pass that up???? It did not fail to please. Not too sweet at all, fluffy frosting, banana cream middle and banana cake.... More

Staying at the Marriott Marquis, and wanted a treat one day; this cupcake place is inside of a small mall area nearby,and well worth a visit. There are some great flavor choices, but I'm glad they also have some of the best basics, like a red velvet cupcake that defines what we in the South know to be true red... More

Seriously this place is perfect -- if you're feeling down -- a cupcake from Cako will make you feel like all is well in the world again. Get the one with sprinkles all over it. It will change your life -- and make you feel like it's your birthday :)

We had the lemon cupcakes with blueberry compote filling three nights in a row. Their macaroons are good, too!
